Two individuals lost their lives on Tuesday, April 5 at around 8:00 p.m. when the motorcycle they were riding on the northbound service road of State Highway 121 at Plano Parkway in The Colony, Texas was struck by a possible drunk driver, who ran a red light.
The deceased were identified as 42-year-old husband and wife, Jeremy and Stephanie Byington, who were both from The Colony. According to preliminary investigations, the couple was riding their motorcycle along the Plano Parkway when a northbound SUV crashed into them.
A GoFundMe account has been created to help the family of the victims with burial expenses.
Plano police have determined during their investigation that the suspect, whose name they have yet to release, may have been drinking at the time of the incident. They added that they will only release the suspect’s name publicly when charges have been formally filed.
